The beach is not easy to access. You need a boat or a motorbike to come here. Much less tourists are here and if you walk a bit, you can enjoy the beach allmost on your own. Perfect for a day under the sun.

If you don't want to run to a lot of people in the island and just needed a quiet place to relax and swim to...head straight to Puka Beach. The white sand is great and very few people visits here. From the main road, you can ride a tricycle (a 3-wheeled motor) going to Puka Beach.

We visited Puka Shell Beach as an alternative to White Beach and what a contrast it was. Arriving at Puka Beach you pass a few stalls selling shell based souvenirs and clothes, once past these stalls the beach gets quieter. There are a few places to get a drink and there are sunbeds offered at these bars too. Shade is... More

Puka Beach is a short mototbike ride from the White Beach area (about 15 mins) yet it's much quieter. There are a few restaurants and shops along the beach and one in particular does a fantastic coconut and rum shake!

The best spot in the whole island to relax. I would recommend booking your stay with the hotels that has access to the beach. We stayed at Alta Vista so we got a ride, cabana and towels. There are beads/pearl vendors but they are not touts. Some guys are offering cooked food - grilled fish and the like. Negotiate the... More

The fixed price to come here is 150 PHP per Tricycle ( from anywhere in boracay). The Puka Shell beach is full of sovenir shop ( every store is selling the same stuff ). Many people along the beach will ask you if you want a drink, this is quite annoying. We spent 2-3 hours lying here & enjoy the... More

Puka Shell beach is much more quiet compared to the White Beach. There are not too many services and the beach is more windy compared to the White Beach & for swimming waves were also much bigger than in White Beach. There was also a big sand bottom cave at the beach which you can visit allmost at the other... More
